Casually outstanding

Rarely do you find truly outstanding food and service in a casual setting. That rare combination is Antigua. The food rivals any I have had anywhere at any price. The service was spot on.

Surprised to find $15 plates during lunchtime on the weekend, especially in West Allis. I went there for the Cuban pork but unfortunately it was gross and boring. I expected pork slow-cooked for hours and saturated with flavor. Instead the cubed pieces looked dry, unappealing and didn't have flavor past the outside. Our appetizer guacamole was good, but it was... More

Antigua is our "secret" spot when we want an excellent Latin/South American meal at a reasonable price. The restaurant is not large but (so far) we have not had trouble getting a table as walk-ins. The menu includes traditional Mexican dishes, along with a number of unusual entres with roots in Peru or Bolivia or similar. Everything we have tried... More

My wife and I dined here with a friend on a fairly busy Sat. night. From start to finish it was a most enjoyable evening. Our waitress, Nancy, recommended the guacamole and the ceviche. The guacamole was beyond the ordinary dish you find in most Mexican restaurants and the ceviche was tasty but could have used more lime. We each... More

We arrived for dinner around 7:30 p.m. with no reservations. My two dinner companions and I waited for about 10 minutes for our waiter, Joe. He seemed disorganized and apologized for not having a drink menu on the table. No big deal, we knew from a previous visit that we'd like the pomegranate mojitos. We ordered dinner and the guacamole... More

This was a great restaurant with one small exception, the food was not hot it was warm, but I am taking that with a grain of salt. We came in near closing and ordered a nice small banquet of food. The taste and flavors were out of this world. There were some many choices that sounded out of this world,... More

We enjoyed an ice cold Dos Equis Amber as we looked over the menu keyed with flags of the countries of the origin of the dish. My husband enjoyed Mayan Cochinita Pibil while I was content with Peruvian Lomo Saltado, even though it did not live up to its "spicy" reputation. My server warned that my dish was spicy and...

We went to celebrate my daughter-in-laws birthday, and I must say she made a fantastic choice in Antigua. I am not a big fan of most Mexican food, buy the Latin variety on the menu was great. Everything we tried, from the guacamole to the Peruvian Ceviche, the Seafood Paella, and both the Flan and Terrina de Almendra's was superb!... More

My family and I came to Antigua with my parents for Sunday dinner. As we waited for our food, our children got a little bit restless--as children normally do, so we let them walk around to look at things. The server didn't like this too much and told our girls not to touch things, which they weren't because I was... More

Saturday night, the place was jammed. My reservation for 6:30 was not honored until 7pm as the restaurant staff miscalculated the speed at which tables would turn over. Sat at the bar but where never offered a chance to order a drink as the bartenders were overwhelmed. Finally served, our waitress was excellent! The food was good, but not exceptional.... More
